There were multiple bands called The Chymes.
1. The Chymes were a girl group active in the mid 1960s. They released one EP in 1966 called "Quite A Reputation".
2. Harmonizing brothers Victor, David and James Martin recorded a clutch of singles in the late ’60s and early ’70s as both the Star-Tels and the Chymes . “My Baby’s Gone Away,” sort of a spiritual cousin to “The Price of Love,” succeeds here as an urban tale, its passing reference to Vietnam doesn’t draw attention to itself, but reflects the everyday reality of the war and conscription for the young black male at the time.
